Rand Paul unveils ObamaCare replacement

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) unveiled an ObamaCare replacement bill Wednesday as part of his effort to urge the GOP to speed up work on an alternative to the healthcare law.

Paul has been pushing his colleagues to have a replacement plan ready to pass simultaneously with repeal of ObamaCare, a demand that has recently been gaining support inside the party. His office noted that President Trump and Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) have also reacted favorably to that idea.

“There is no excuse for waiting to craft an alternative until after we repeal Obamacare, and the Obamacare Replacement Act charts a new path forward that will insure the most people possible at the lowest price,” Paul said in a statement.

Paul’s plan comes the same week that two other Republican senators, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and Susan Collins of Maine, introduced a different ObamaCare replacement, also with the hope of spurring their party to move forward on an alternative in addition to repealing the Affordable Care Act. That plan was more centrist, keeping ObamaCare’s taxes and letting states choose to keep the existing healthcare law if they wanted.

    Susan Collins is a left wing Rino. I should know because I’ve lived in Maine most of my life.

    Once again Dr. Paul shows why I supported his presidential bid. Kentucky’s junior senator clearly understands the Constitution and the role of government. What many of you may not know is that he often provides free eye surgeries for the needy during his breaks from the Senate. Every time I have met him he comes across as a true gentleman and a brilliant person.

    I’m glad to see we have multiple versions of health care reform in the works. We are seeing what should have happened eight years ago. A variety of ideas should have been put forward on how to improve health care for Americans. Unfortunately the only thing considered eight years ago was a bloated law which created more government bureaucracy and incompetence.

      The best thing that can be done is get the government out of the healthcare. If we have laws that they must include coverage for people who have an existing condition and they do not do that the govt. should take action. Health care is not health care anymore. There is no care at all.

        I agree the best thing that can happen to health care is for government to get out of it. To reduce the number of media accounts of people who lost their health insurance and then loses everything paying for health care, the process needs to be done in a phase down so people can move to something better. The uninsurables may need to be rolled into some sort of government plan.

    This is one sharp cookie and Trump is right to look into the Federal Reserve and he needs to set Rand on it. I liked Rand until I realized he had picked up too much of his father’s ideas. But all in all he is smart and I bet he has a great plan. Besides this O care was presented in a way to make it look like it was only for those families who were uninsured, instead everyone forced on it.

    Pelosi and all those Progressive/Communists who are the only one’s who voted for it are really getting it good. They are now out there talking to the average Joe to find out why they are hated. HAHAHA

      Obamacare could never have worked unless every American was signed up and had their premiums doubled or tripled in order to get the money needed to give free insurance to all of those on the government welfare roles. There has never been a true accounting of how many are getting free insurance. The only thing that is mentioned is they get subsidies. Just how much are those subsidies? If it’s 100% like I suspect that is why everybody else’s has risen through the roof. This is true “redistribution of wealth” that the liberals always want. Vote buying at it’s easiest.

        Yes exactly and by the way I am an RN for 30 years throughout our country the law is that hospitals can’t turn anyone down who is in need in the ER. There are also all over this country, County Hospitals and clinics and state clinics that give free healthcare. For every PP there are 15 county or state facilities offering full women’s health care.
